Paris Fire Department has deployed two members to assist with the California Wild Fires. They left Monday morning on their way west. They will be part of a Strike Team from Northwest Texas. All of this is part of TIFMAS (Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System), a program our department is part of. Please keep Captain Matt Barbee, Firefighter Corey Parks, and their families in your thoughts and prayers. Additionally, Driver Michael Fox from the Paris area but working at the Allen Fire Department is also part of this group. This deployment will last up to 14 days, meaning that this group will likely spend Thanksgiving away from home.
